Storm Heading Toward Watertown Wednesday, Thursday; Mix of Rain and Snow Expected
The forecast calls for mostly wet snow and little accumulation in the suburbs west of Boston.
Another big storm will hit the Boston area on Wednesday and Thursday, but it looks like it will be mostly rain in Eastern Massachusetts.
The storm will hit early Wednesday morning and last through Thursday. There's a chance of snow before 10 a.m., according to the National Weather Service forecast, but little accumulation is expected. High winds are expected, with gusts up to 44 mph.
The precipitation continues Thursday in the Boston area, with snow likely before 2 p.m, and then turning to rain, according to the NWS. It turns back to snow in the evening.
How much snow will fall is the most uncertain part of the storm, writes WHDH TV meteorologist Jeremy Reiner in his blog. Wet snow is expected in the suburbs west of Boston, Reiner writes, but with no accumulation. Most of the snow will be along Interstate 495, and west of there, which could receive 2-4 inches of snow.
Winds will be a concern along the coasts, Reiner writes, with prolonged periods of winds between 30 and 40 mph. Winds will be around 30 mph inland and could last until Friday in all areas.
